My husband and I stayed in this unit in Tokyo for around 5 nights in September 2011. We had planned to go to another location for 1 night but due to land slides, were unable to get to our planned accommodation. Without anywhere to spend the night, we contacted Ayako who was beyond accommodating in letting us stay an extra night at virtually no notice. Admittedly, we got a little lost figuring out which street to turn down to find the apartment but with the help of some friendly businessmen we spotted the hair dressers on the corner followed closely by the ever so convenient vending machine across the street.
Ayako arrived right on time to let us in and took us through all the important things about the unit. She has a fantastic guide on how to use all the electrical appliances and I was particularly amused with the fancy shower contraption. There is everything you can possibly need, we particularly liked having the washer/dryer handy. We didn't use much of the cooking gear as we always ate out (who wouldn't in Japan!) but the kitchen looked well stocked with everything you could need. The laptop with internet access was a huge bonus making it very easy to plan all the train rides and venues for each day's adventures.
When we first walked in we were very impressed. This may be a studio but it doesn't feel like it at all - it is so spacious! It was just the two of us but with the two double/queen beds you could easily sleep 4 without feeling really overcrowded.
The apartment isn't far to the JR loop line and is even closer to one of the local lines which admittedly we didn't use (having a JR pass). Right under the station there is a huge market-like shopping area which can definitely keep you amused. My particular favourite was a permanent stall right under the JR tracks selling bite sized crepes. I stopped in every day on the way home to get my fill for dessert and admittedly breakfast!
We could go on and on about the apartment but what made our stay particularly brilliant was Ayako! She helped me in planning the trip, which was a surprise present for my husband, even assisting in purchasing tickets that were only available on Japanese websites. From the welcome note to the little gifts she had left, everything was perfect. To me this support and friendly welcome is a priceless bonus you cannot get in a hotel.
We will certainly stay again when visiting Tokyo.
Thanks Ayako, we look forward to seeing you again!
This was the third time in five years that we had stayed at Ayako's lovely apartment in Ueno/Okachimachi. The first two stays were with our two children. This time we took their grandparents. They really enjoyed a comfortable home to return to each day.
The apartment was well-equipped and comfortable for four with features such as a combination washer/dryer, a full body shower and in-room Wi-Fi plus mobile Wi-Fi (which we didn't know Ayako and Hisae would be providing). Plenty of extras are also supplied including umbrellas, new house slippers, ample shampoo, conditioner, body soap, detergents, toilet paper and a basket of complimentary goodies.
The location is fantastic for people with a JR pass, being an easy walk from Okachimachi JR Station and the Ueno Shinkansen (bullet train) station and therefore having easy and fast access to large swathes of Japan.
There is also easy access to the Satake covered shopping street and local supermarkets. Try Pizza Sano (in Satake) and Khanapina for great dining nearby. We also enjoyed exploring more of the lovely Taito district.
This apartment is always clean, cosy and comfortable. Thank you again Ayako and Hisae.
We stayed at Tochirou for 6 nights in September 2015.
We received a very warm welcome in person by Ayako, even though we arrived after 8pm. She was very patient while we asked a lot of questions about the way things worked in the flat, because it was our first night in Japan. It was so kind to gift us a basket with coffee, crackers and other snacks - we really enjoyed these on our first visit.
A few thoughts:
All instructions were in excellent English, even the WC had an instruction!
The beds were very comfortable, soft towels and all essentials well stocked, including washing powder.
Everything else was so thoroughly thought through - hair dryer, iron, coat hangers, even ear buds!
TV/Cable TV and DVD player were available. Most TV channels were Japanese but the remote control did allow for a English translate button for the cable TV which our kids loved. They also loved the computer/internet connection provided - this was an unexpected bonus.
The washing machine is also a dryer which is very handy as there's no outside private space.
The kitchen was very well set up with a rice cooker, a small oven/grill, a microwave and a hot plate. A large fridge meant we could stock up and prepare some delicious meals with fresh vegetables, meat or fish from the local shops (5 minutes walk away).
The bike rental, small park and Shin-Okachimachi metro station also within 5 minute walk so very well located. Exciting Ueno shopping streets and beautiful park only 10 minutes walk.
Very tidy and clean and didn't feel cramped at all - we were there with 4 people (2 adults and 2 kids aged 11 and 14) for 6 nights and we were very sad to leave our home away from home!
Overall, Tochirou is a beautifully designed flat that felt peaceful and quiet and a haven to come home to after a day in bustling Tokyo.
We'd unreservedly recommend Tochirou and would like to thank Ayako and Hisai for all they did to make it happen.

This is the second time we've stayed in this little flat and once again it was perfect. Hisae-san looked after us from beginning to end making us feel really welcome, even giving us a wedding present!
The flat itself is clean and compact with everything you might need in a finite area. Hisae-san gave us clear instructions on how to use all the equipment there - the rice cooker, washing machine, loo seat (!) etc, and there is a laptop in the flat with ADSL and wifi internet to boast to everyone at home what a lovely time you're having!
Ueno is a great location, it's on the JR Yamanote line - Okachimachi station is right round the corner and Ueno is about 15 mins walk away - which will take you in a circle via Akihabara, Tokyo, Shibuya, Shinjuku, Ikebukuro and back again. It's out of town enough to be nice and (relatively) quiet and has a lovely park with a zoo and a museum.
The Korean bbq place round the corner from the flat is highly recommended! Otherwise there's a Lawson and 7/11 just round the corner for some self catering and vending machines everywhere (which sell grape Fanta! We can't get it in the UK and I miss it already!). There are also some nice little restaurants nearer Ueno station that do traditional Japanese food like donburi and sushi.
We've already recommended this to several friends and will definitely be staying here again on our next trip.
Hisae-san, Ayako-san, dōmo arigatōgozaimashita!

My little daughter and me enjoyed the stay in this cozy flat a lot. As an European I was looking for an apartment with a dining table and chairs, where we could have a meal, play and where my daughter could draw. That is not too often to find in Tokyo. So I was glad to rent this flat. It is spacious, clean, well equipped and great for a family. Everything is easy accessible by underground and train and even by foot. So I can really recommend it!
Thanks also to Hisae for the warm welcome and quick responses to my questions.
Very good place to stay in Tokyo.
We had a good time close to Ueno.
The flat is really clean and well equipped.
Hisae is from great support.
The apartment is lovely and very well appointed (washing machine with dryer, cooking equipment, microwave, welcome booklet, recycling bins…).
We really enjoyed staying here : the room is spacious for Tokyo, the beds are comfortable and the toilets and shower have pleasant options…
Convenient to connect the subway or JR line, it is close to Asakusa/ Ueno/ Akihabara and it is also easy to get anywhere in Tokyo or to Haneda airport.
Hisae was a perfect host, welcoming, cheerful and even clairvoyant (she found us when we were lost a few blocks away from the location!). Thank you for everything, see you if we come back in Japan ^^

We have a vacation home in Taito-ku in Tokyo. It is a place that is perfect for strolling in Tokyo. It is convenient for transport. You can go to Asakusa in 2 minutes, Akihabara in 3 minutes by Tsukuba Express Line and go to Ginza in 13minutes, Shibuya in 29 minutes by Subway Ginza Line. You can also go to Akihabara in 25 minutes, Ueno Park in 20 minutes and Asakusa in 30 minutes on foot. Our room is close to Asakusa and Ameyoko. One of the few places that retains the old flavour of Edo is Asakusa. I recommend visiting the Kaminari-mon, or taking a stroll through the quiet back ways of the town. A little to the north in Ueno's Ameyoko, just listening to the hawkers and spruckers you can get a feel for the colourful, lively haggling that used to be the hallmark of the district.
